Episode 28—The Value of a Retreat
About the show
By the time you’re listening to this, I’ll be happily in retreat-land. I’m heading off on a very short silent retreat (my first since my kiddo was born), so I wanted to take this minisode to talk about why I take retreats, the value of a retreat, what you can expect, and how to know whether a retreat is right for you.
But what I really want you to know? That while getting away to a retreat center is wonderful, a DIY retreat can be just as powerful and impactful.

Can’t Get Away? Your Homework is to Do a DIY Retreat!
Even if you can’t get away, creating a mini DIY retreat is easy and super-rewarding. Plus, you can make it work for your exact schedule and budget. Take an afternoon or even an hour to retreat with yourself for some meditation, journaling, and reflection—or create your own DIY home retreat, using my free resources. I’ve created tons of supportive materials to help you feel like you’ve retreated, but from the comfort of your own home.
